These socks came about when I wanted the look of a short row heel in a contrasting colour but with the fit of a gusset. I really didn't want to break up the colours of my yarn or get pooling, so I experimented with using a combination of a mini-gusset and a short row heel turn and found the perfect fit that just 'pops' onto my foot! I use this sock construction all the time now to get my perfect fit. These are great for minimising pooling or colour changes caused by increasing stitches and are also a fun way to use up small amounts of yarn. Sizes available are small, medium and large (7",8" and 9" foot circumference). The sock is toe up. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit in the round, magic cast on, short rows GAUGE 8 stitches and 13 rows = 1 inch in Stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Small(7"), medium(8") and large(9) foot circumference. This gives a sock with ~0.5" negative ease. Additional sizes can be achieved by changing needle sizes.
